I’ve made some new watch movement rings. These have much better, stronger rings, and unusual watch movements. The machined oval one I haven’t seen before, and the copper (or is it rose gold) colour, and the gold one are hard to come by too.

Puzzlewood Magical Forest — The Real Middle Earth

Puzzlewood is a unique and enchanting place, located in the beautiful and historic Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, England. There is more than a mile of meandering pathways through Puzzlewood and over 14 acres of ancient woodland. It has an atmosphere quite unlike any other wood. The magical forest is one of the most stunning in the world and it’s easy to see why it’s been used as a filming location for Merlin and Dr. Who. It is no wonder that JRR Tolkien is reputed to have taken his inspiration for the fabled forests of Middle Earth from Puzzlewood. 

In Puzzlewood you will find strange rock formations, secret caves and ancient trees. The geological features here are known locally as scowles. The scowles originated through the erosion of natural underground cave systems formed in limestone many millions of years ago. Uplift and erosion caused the cave system to become exposed at the surface. This was then exploited by Iron Age settlers through to Roman times for the extraction of iron ore.

Evidence of Roman occupation of the area is supported by the discovery of a hoard of over 3,000 Roman coins from the 3rd Century which were found in the scowles of Puzzlewood. Once the Romans left, nature reclaimed the old workings with moss and trees, to create the unique landscape. The historical use soon became forgotten, and the folklore of “Puzzlewood” began.

In the early 1800s, a local landowner laid down a mile of pathways which meandered through the trees and gulleys to open up this ancient forest originally for the amusement of his friends and children. In the early 1900s, Puzzlewood opened to the public. Since then it is has remained essentially unchanged with the same stunning pathways and bridges as in earlier times, but with the addition of a variety of animals and visitor facilities.

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

Rest in peace.

I was in a supermarket, apparently being filmed for a UK version of Extreme Couponing. I was at the checkout, with trolleys full of stuff that I didn’t need, but was buying because it was on special offer, and the lady at the till kept ringing it all up wrongly so my coupons wouldn’t work.

Eventually, she got it all right, and I presented my final coupon - a cardboard elephant shaped coupon which slotted into a special hole in the till. As she slotted it in, bells rang, alarms went off, and fireworks shot out of the top of the till. Balloons and streamers fell from the ceiling.

Suddenly, a nearby door opened, and Noel Fielding leaped out, with his arm waving out in front of his face like an elephant’s trunk. He danced around the till area, being an elephant, and singing Nellie the Elephant, as the music from Nellie the Elephant played very loudly. Several rainbow coloured unicorns (actual unicorns, not people dressed up), with sparkly manes and glass horns also came through the door and pranced around behind him. All the staff and customers joined in with the singing and dancing, all waving their arms like elephants’ trunks.

I heard someone calling my name, and woke up.

I was driving along a country road, all green and leafy. As i reached my destination, there were several sandy car parks, I parked the car, and walked towards a very austere looking modern church. I was there to attend a funeral. I don’t know whose.

There were two groups of guests, one group wearing normal clothes, not black clothes, like me. Another group very overdressed in Victorian black funeral clothes. We were all standing around in the scrubby, sandy area at the front of the church. There were small dark red snakes in amongst the bushes. An orange five headed snake was slithering around, and people were moving away from it, but basically not taking much notice of it.

We all went in, and it was very cramped. I was sitting between two people that I used to go to school with. A very slim lady with neat straight hair called Linda, and a tall, somewhat geeky man with dark hair and glasses called Peter. Peter was looking unwell, and holding an airline sick bag.

On the back of the pews in front of us, on the shelf, instead of prayer and hymn books, lots of straw was scattered.

Suddenly the five headed snake started slithering along in the straw in front of me. It was looking around with all it’s heads in all different directions. I said ‘Oh, I’ll take it outside’. So I carefully picked it up, and pushed open the door, and set it down amongst the nearby bushes. It turned black and slithered away. When I turned around, the church was gone, and I could see my car alone in the nearby car park.

I carved out a smallish Jack O Lantern yesterday for baby Cooper to play in this morning. I think he really enjoyed exploring it inside and out. :)

Why does cat food come in flavours like lamb, rabbit, and fish? When realistically, if left to fend for themselves, cats would more likely be eating rat, mouse, and bird…
